All of us love a new makeup or manicure trend, don’t we? But if there’s one thing that truly transforms your look and makes you feel like a whole new person, it’s a hairstyle. So if you’re looking to give yourself a chic makeover or contemplating ridding your tresses of their grown-out layers, look no further than these five hair trends that are set to dominate 2022.


1. Bobs with side parts

Bobs with side parts

Bobs have gotten an upgrade. If you’re on the lookout for a style that’s a little more striking than a straightforward bob, this is the way to go. And, no, this isn’t exclusive to curly-haired girls. That’s how versatile this look is. If your hair lacks volume, you can add soft waves to this chin-length cut for some movement and dimension.


2. Sleek strands

Sleek strands

A sleek look is just as glamorous as it is simple. And when paired with the right ensemble, this style is statement-making. Just blow-dry your hair like you normally would, ensure your hair is damp at this stage, and flat-iron your tresses after. Don’t forget to spritz your hair with a heat-resistant product like the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray before using heat styling tools. This gem protects your hair from heat up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.


3. Slicked-back tresses

Slicked-back tresses

We’re well-acquainted with the slicked-back look. And just how chic is it? Sported by the likes of Gigi Hadid and Kim Kardashian, slicked-back tresses are sultry and elegant. Pull your hair back with a brush, blow-dry them so they’re sitting flat on your head, and push the sections at the front toward the back with a straightener. Apply a few drops of argan oil in your hair, and spritz some setting spray at the end to hold the style in place.


4. Mid-length layered hair

Mid-length layered hair

Hair trends in 2022 aren't going to be as much about long and thick inches as mid-length hair with chin-grazing, face-framing layers. This is such a classic! And you don’t really have to style this look either. But you can use a blow-dryer to fake more volume.


5. One-dimensional colours

Bid adieu to balayage and ombré, and say hello to one-dimensional colours. According to projections, soft black, chocolate brown, and warm ginger are a few colours that are going to be dominating the hair-colour palette in 2022.
